Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: In December 2003, Stillwater Sciences was commissioned by American Rivers, Trout Unlimited, California Trout, and Friends of the River to conduct a preliminary assessment of the sediment transport characteristics in the Klamath River. This assessment used Stillwater Sciences' Dam Removal Express Assessment Model, DREAM-1, to simulate the removal of Iron Gate, J.C. Boyle, and the two Copco dams (shown in Figures 1a, 1b, and 2). This study assumes that J.C. Boyle and Copco dams will be removed first before the removal of Iron Gate Dam to try to minimize downstream impacts. The simulated reach includes Iron Gate Reservoir and the entire mainstem Klamath River downstream of Iron Gate Dam.
